First Doctor's Visit

Because we had our trip to New Mexico scheduled, and because Dr. M. said to come in as soon as I knew I was pregnant, we went to see him today. The nurse was a little surprised -- she couldn't understand why we were bothering to come in so early on! -- but Dr. M. was absolutely great. He brought Mike and I into his office, introduced himself to Mike, and talked with us for about 20 minutes. He didn't make me feel like an obsessive loon for coming in so early, especially when I explained about the scheduled trip. To play it safe, he got us fit in to have an ultrasound first thing tomorrow morning to ensure that the baby is in the uterus where it belongs, and has not taken up residence in my only fallopen tube or some other place where it doesn't belong and could cause a danger to me or my future fertility. Wish us luck there. Mike, God bless him, got to witness his very first pelvic exam. He was a trooper.
